Poetry

Group Leader: Pamela Mann
Telephone: 01777 700307
Email: poetry@retford-u3a.org.uk
Meetings: First Thursday @ 2-4pm (Nov-Feb 1:30-3:30)
Venue: Hallcroft Community Centre, Randall Way

We are a friendly group of poetry lovers, who enjoy reading and discussing poems.  We each bring to the meetings poems we know, or have found, on the given theme for the month, prepared to read them or to ask another person to read them if you would prefer.  Our themes are wide-ranging, and we are always discovering things we didn't know before!   Everyone is welcome to come and listen, or join in .  Each year we give the writers in our group a chance to read their own work should they wish.

Call me first please, if you intend to come.
